Description:
KANZU Research, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) in collaboration with Construction Research of Institute Malaysia (CREAM), Construction Industry Development Board of Malaysia (CIDB) and Futurise Sdn. Bhd has agreed to collaborate on a research project involving a project called A Collaborative Multi-Agency Platform for Building Resilient Communities (MOBILISE).

To realize this cooperation, a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) and Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was held on 05 August 2019 in Level 5, Tunku Tun Aminah Library, UTHM. UTHM was represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation), Prof. Ts. Dr. Ruzairi Abdul Rahim while CREAM was represented by Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CREAM, Dato Ir. Rohaizi Mohd Jusoh and Futurise Sdn. Bhd was represented by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr. Mahadhir Aziz.

In 2017, the research group, KANZU Research: Resilient Built Environment received a research grant form Engineering Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC), United Kingdom (UK). With this MOBILISE research grant, a researcher from CREAM has been sponsored by the University of Salford, UK to pursue a PhD. in the university in the field of Critical Infrastructure & Disaster Resilient for three years.

The collaboration agreement also stated that KANZU Research, UTHM donated RM 280,000 to CREAM while CREAM donated RM 60,000 to UTHM to cover the expenses of the research. Both of these donations will be used to sponsor a student selected by CREAM and UTHM to further their PhD. level studies. At the ceremony, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation), Prof. Ts Dr. Ruzairi Abdul Rahim stated that this sponsored researcher was able to create and devise an idea of an innovation that would make this MOBILISE project a success.

He added that the two-party collaboration would provide better results for the MOBILISE project, especially in developing an integrated digital infrastructure for various national disaster management agencies to reduce the impact of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) on Malaysian communities. At the same time, the UTHM-Futurise collaboration will also see a joint venture in promoting MOBILISE Malaysia nationwide.

Also presented at the event were Sr. Dr. Mohd Lizam Mohd Diah (Dean of the Faculty of Technology and Business Management), Associate Professor Dr. Nor Hazana Abdullah (Deputy Dean Research Development & Publication) and Sr. Dr. Noralfishah Sulaiman (Head Researcher of KANZU Research: Resilient Built Environment.

Dr. Wahid Razzaly (Vice-Chancellor of UTHM), Prof. Terrence Fernando (THINKlab, University of Salford, Manchester) and 40 Sarawak Disaster Management Agencies

Description:
Conference has been successfully organized on 22 August 2019. All the agencies participate actively and gave positive feedback on the conference. During the workshop and discussion, we have divided it into 3 sessions. First session is regarding the Multi-Agency Collaboration Model. The aims of carrying out this session is to gather input on understanding multi-agency collaboration models among the Sarawak Disaster Management Agencies (SDMA); to share the knowledge and experience regarding collaboration among multi-agency while dealing with stages in disaster management cycle; to understand interest, strategies, agency relationships and internal power relation of the SDMA and all the input will be fed into the academic journal papers. During this session, we asked the participants to answer an online survey using Google Form by using their electronic devices and all the responds have been recorded and submitted to us. So, we will try to analyze it and develop our own collaboration model that can fit the MOBILISE project.

The second and third sessions are the Brainstorming Session. All the participants are required to have a round-table discussion and each table provided with one paper to write down their opinions on the challenges on collaboration and best solutions in enhancing collaboration during disaster management in Sarawak.

From the discussion, we have found out that the most challenges part in disaster management are due to the silo thinking, lack of internal/external coordination, communication problems, lack of data/information sharing among agencies, disaster information are not disseminate properly during disasters and different time of respond among agencies during disaster. Besides, the MoU and MoA signing ceremony between UTHM, Sarawak Multimedia Authority and RS & GIS Consultancy Sdn Bhd during the MOBILISE Sarawak 4.0 conference has been carried out during the conference.

 

Activity:
Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA) inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM).

Place/Venue:
THINKlab, University of Salford Manchester, UK

Participants:
Prof. Terrence Fernando and THINKlab Team.

Description:

After intensive research and development work over the last two years, the THINKlab team is now ready to release its first interactive digital platform to disaster management centers in Colombo, Sri Lanka; Sarawak State, Malaysia; and Peshawar, Pakistan.

The donation from the THINKlab is the MOBILISE digital platform that runs on a state-of-the-art multi-touch screen driven by a high-performance computer.  Agencies have the choice of using a web-based interface or a 3D virtual reality interface of the platform to explore and develop their risk reduction strategies. The software created and developed by the XR software engineers, the UX designers and researchers from the THINKlab combines seven main data categories (including built and natural environment, social information, land characteristics, hazards, real-time and remote sensory data) which segment a further 60 data layer and attributes to determine disaster risks.

This digital platform, developed as a part of the MOBILISE project, funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) and UK Research and Innovation, will allow the disaster management centers to combine various vulnerable, exposure and hazards’ information from multiple agencies to establish a more holistic understanding of their local risks. In turn, this will enable them to work together to develop disaster risk reduction strategies to reduce the impact of natural disasters on the local communities, infrastructure and economy.

The Director of the THINKlab, Professor Terrence Fernando stated: “It has been a challenging journey for developing a common approach and vision for our partner countries and bringing digital innovation to their current disaster risk reduction and disaster response activities. This is only the beginning of a long journey to transform current disaster risk reduction activities by various government organizations in middle-income countries. We are fortunate to have committed academic partners and government organizations in our project consortium who have worked with us to progress this far.”

Professor Fernando also added: “The feedback from various disaster management agencies and other government agencies has been extremely positive. We hope to make the MOBILISE platform available to other governments around the world very soon. I hope other research organizations will join us for creating bespoke environments for their local governments.”

Funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) and The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the MOBILISE project focuses on LMIC communities in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and Pakistan who are regularly affected by natural disasters such as flooding, landslides, and earthquakes.

The MOBILISE platform is targeted at helping various governments to implement the Sendai Framework Priority 1: ‘Understanding Risks’ and Priority 2: ‘Risk Governance,’ as established by the United Nations.

Led by the THINKlab Director, Prof Terrence Fernando, the project is developing a digital infrastructure which offers intelligence to multiple stakeholders who can work together to help reduce the impact of natural disasters on their local communities. Set up in May 2017, the project is to be completed in December 2020. For more information about the MOBILISE project.
